Dr. Culter has over 40 years of experience in R&D in various industries. He has been involved in various aspects of packaging R&D since 1974. He has carried out R&D in polymer properties, converting technologies and end-use applications. That experience is being applied to client's problems in the polymer, converting and food packaging industries.
Working at applying his knowledge on the food packaging plant floor has allowed him to develop a unique background in product/material/machine interface problems that can aid his clients in solving problems and increasing line efficiency. Expertise in product/package interface issues can solve taste/odor problems that may have eluded prior attempts at solution.
His background in engineering and science in many different applied fields allows him to bring different perspectives to problem solutions and find unique solutions.
He currently teaches in the Online Masters Degree program at The School of Packaging at Michigan State University. Having taught polymer applications and packaging at the university level and throughout his industrial career, prepares him to develop training programs for organizations to improve their in-house capabilities.
